This is a review of a figure in an outfit with short shorts and a visible bra, which is why it's marked as NSFW !

Welcome to my review! Today I will be talking about a figure of a bishoujo version of Ash Williams ENTRY #134145 from the horror movie classic Evil Dead 2: Dead By Dawn ENTRY #134146 ! This figure ITEM #600025 is made by Kotobukiya ENCYCLOPEDIA #7621 and part of the Horror Bishoujo line ENTRY #105896 with illustrations from well-received artist Yamashita Shunya ENTRY #8364 .

I will start off with telling some more about her background.

Background

Evil Dead 2: Dead By Dawn is the second movie in the Evil Dead franchise and is considered a really classic comedy/horror movie nowadays. Where the first movie was a serious horror movie, this sequel had a perfect dash of parody while still keeping horror elements. Admittedly, if you now watch this 1987 released movie, it can feel a bit cheesy, but not to worry! There is also a 2015 tv-series that follows a very similar plot while still keeping the same main character.

Ash Williams is...really something, where do I even start with this guy. A very talkative person, combined with a drive for 'act first, think later'. A big ego and a ladies man. But let's not forget he has the skills (especially since Evil Dead 2) to prove that he knows what he is doing when it comes to surviving.

The reason why and how I got her

I'm a huge fan of a lot of horror media and Evil Dead (mainly 2 and 3) are really high ranked in my favorites. I was already keeping an eye out on the Kotobukiya Bishoujo line and especially their Horror line, so when this figure was announced I pre-ordered her right away! My other currently owned Horror Bishoujo are Jason ITEM #555569 (still have to unbox her) and Edward ITEM #381685 (made a blog about her here: BLOG #38713 ). I have been thinking about getting maybe later also Chucky ITEM #393941 and Michael ITEM #675732 .

Original art

As with the other Yamashita Shunya ENTRY #8364 designed bishoujo figures, he has first made an piece of artwork where the figure exactly will be modelled after.

When I first saw this artwork, I was completely floored with how amazingly well he had captured Ash his liking in female form and this quickly became my favorite bishoujo design!

With the translation from 2D artwork to 3D figure most things were kept the same. The most notable differences are a slight change in the expression and Kotobukiya ending up giving her a darker skin tone than the original artwork.

I think the artwork's posing was highly inspired by above promotonial image made for the movie. The cocky expression and the upheld chainsaw hand are an almost perfect match! What I also really like is that this bishoujo doesn't even add a lot more fanservice than the original Ash already had: The clothes rips are in the exact same places and I'm pretty sure that if Ash were to be female, he really wouldn't care about half of his bra being exposed. Rather s/he would say 'do you like what you see?'.

Kotobukiya really outdid themselves with the design of this box. It's nicely compact and perfectly in theme with the franchise, especially with the necronomicon side-window. I also like how one side of the box is completely dedicated to the artwork she is based on.

The box has round tapes on the three sides of the top part of the box to keep the figure sealed.

There is a small jumpscare surprise when you open the box and see the eyes from the original movie poster.

If that isn't 'bad' enough, there is also an hidden Linda at the bottom of the box! Talk about attention to detail, though! I really did not expect to find both of these images!

The blisters are two pieces that can easily be opened up. There is some protective wrapper here and there around Ash. The figure itself (like many Kotobukiya figures) comes in one piece and is attached to the base.

Just...wow. It's been a long time since I was so impressed with a figure as what was happening to me right now! It's not like I am looking at a 'pretty girl design based on' Ash, it's really like having Ash as woman here! I really can't get enough of her, my apologies for all of my fangirling that already happened and is to come!

That base is also amazing and tells an important plot point from the movie. The chains on the base are made from actual metal instead of PVC. It's hard to imagine this figure was released a bit more than half a year ago for only ¥9,000!

Looking at all the details!

When this figure's first prototypes were shown, I remember hearing quite some mixed responses to how her mouth looked as it's a bit unnatural. Personally I think it's indeed a bit strange, but as it's so in-character for Ash this I already forgave Kotobukiya for this before I hit the pre-order button.

Ash her eyes are colored a lot brighter than the original artwork and I like how they stand out quite a bit. She also has a bit of bushy looking eyebrows for a bishoujo, which I exactly what I expected with Ash even if he turned female.

The face has a bit of shading/contouring to be seen and the blood are applied decals.

The messy hairdo is really a sight to behold. Again, an incredible fit for this female Ash. The messy hair also really adds to the expression and posing of this figure.

There is one big seamline through the middle of the hair and one at the back. The black color and the wide sculpt of the hair make it not stand out a lot unless you get really up close to the figure.

Where to even start here...wow! The rips are really sculpted well and all that blood is so cool! To be honest, I didn't expect Kotobikya to go all out with the blood so much, considering most other Horror Bishoujo only have a few specific spots with some blood here and there.

The strap across her chest is pretty tight fitting and presses her breasts aside for an even sexier look. As far as I know, Bruce Campbell (the original actor) never responded on this figure, but I'm pretty sure he would love this detail!

All the buttons are also neatly painted. I do have one nitpick about the outfit though, and that is that the collar of the shirt was a loose sculpt that later got attached. This makes the collar look 'floating' from some angles. Quite a lot of figures in my collection have this issue, but it would have been nice if there was a better solution for it nowadays.

All the blood on the body is decals and all the blood on the clothes seem to be done by hand. This means that with each copy of this figure the blood on the body will (almost) be the same with every one, while the blood on the clothes can be different with each figure.

We follow these chest straps around the body, which show a lot of detail. The shirt itself also has a lot of wrinkles and more randomized blood splatters.

The sculpt of the missing sleeve is amazing. I was a bit scared that it would be a chunky PVC mess, but the pieces are varied and the blood paint makes it look even more dramatic.

Moving on to the right arm, we see similar sculpt and I like the small indication of her having some upper arm muscles.

Now for the chainsaw hand itself it's a bit debatable how good it is. Personally I find it good enough considering the release price of the figure, but it does seem like some corners were cut here. My specific copy also has a few small paint issues on the silver handle.

The chainsawblade is very neat looking though, and the fake blood is applied in different shades, giving the idea that both newer and older blood splatters are on there.

Ash has quite some shading on her skin and I was surprised to see what an extensive manicure she has on her left hand! Nicely shaped nails with a pink paint. It fits the bishoujo look, but would Ash really have such well maintained nails...?

Let's not forget another well-known accessory for Ash: The boomstick! Strapped and stored on her back, there is actually not much detail to be seen. I'm very happy the boomstick was included with this figure, although that might be more because of the look of the straps than the actual gun and holder.

Those hotpants are really an eyecatcher and there is a nice amount of shading to be seen!

The belt is a bit simple both at the front and back, but it'll do. There are a few smudges in paint with black drooping on brown and brown drooping on silver. It's a bit disappointing to see issues like this on a figure with so much other parts being really outstanding.

You might have already seen it a bit in the previous pictures, but my specific copy of this figure has some huge quality control issues with fingerprints being at the wrong places. Seems like someone added some of the white details and forgot to clean his fingers. I think it went unnoticed by quality control as it's barely visible when you view her from the front.

In this picture you see three really big white spots on her upper leg.

One of these is an continued spot from the prevous picture and one new white spot near her behind.

These are harder to catch on camera, but there are also multiple light brown spots which especially show up in a bright light (such as the one in my display case...).

I was actually quite shocked when I found these defects and my enjoyment from earlier before dropped a bit. I know Kotobukiya makes a bit of 'cheaper' figures compared to most other manufacturers, but these really are defects you can't unsee. So even though I own many Kotobukiya figures and never complained to their customer service about any small defects they have, I now contacted their customer service for the first time about this issue. If you are interested in the rest of this story, open the spoiler, if not, please continue down below with the rest of the review! View spoilerHide spoilerNow I know from companies like Good Smile Company and a few others that you can really expect some good help or a replacement piece if you contact them. I never really heard anything about Kotobukiya's CS, so I didn't know what to expect. To be honest, I was already glad if I could just get a small voucher for my next Kotobukiya purchase or anything like that, as I have been actively buying their figures for 15+ years without ever reporting any complaint. Although I do have to say that earlier 'issues' I had with their figures, were a lot smaller than this. With this figure, if it had only been for the splotches of paint around the belt for example, I would have never contacted them. The fingerprints are really an eyesore, especially when displayed in bright light.

When I got in contact witht heir customer service, the representative also let me know she was quite shocked by the pictures and has not seen something so extreme before. They took a while to deliberate what to do with this case and then said they normally would give an replacement piece, but couldn't do it here (they didn't say the reason, but I assume it would have been because they would have to send a full new figure as she's one piece). They did say they appreciated me as a customer and would prepare another 'apology gift' for which I have to give my address. At the moment of writing I am still waiting for this apology gift. I'm assuming it's similar to other brands their apology packages and it's some small loot (keychain, mini figure etc.) with an apology card from the manufacturer? I will keep you readers updated on this!

Both combat boots are quite simplistic in paint, but the sculpt is nice. There is mainly some shading to be seen at the top of the boots.

I really love how the Necronomicon is included on the base. The shading on it is not as well done as the prototype pictures, but it looks pretty good.

The eyecatcher of the base is the basement door that Ash is trying to keep locked. As earlier shortly mentioned, the chain is made of actual metal and can be freely moved.

The wood effect and paint on the base is pretty neat.

The hand sticking out from the basement has quite some big seamlines, but decent paint for it's size and it being such a small prop to the overall figure.

In general this base is incredible as it tells a huge part of the story, the figure itself interacts with it, and all of that without the base being so distracting you can't look at the figure by herself.

Overall, this figure is really to swoon about if you're a fan of this franchise. That cocky look and pose just screams that you are looking at Ash Williams and make it 100% clear who this bishoujo figure is.

The Points

Positive
- Incredible representation of the character in female form
- Lovely box design
- Incredible quality paint and sculpt
- Very good release price for what you get
- I think I speak for a lot of Evil Dead fans when I say I never expected a figure like this to be made and I'm very happy it happened!

Neutral
- Not everybody might like the expression on the face
- It's debatable how some parts might be a bit too simple (like the chainsaw hand base and the belt) for a figure released in late 2018, but on the other hand she was released for a way lower price than the average figure during that time.

Negative
- Specifically my copy has some huge quality control issues with big fingerprints showing. This seems to be quite an unique case and the Kotobukiya customer service admitted that this is too extreme of an mistake.

The Scores

Sculpting 9/10
Amazing sculpt, I'm especially impressed by the ripped and heavily wrinkled shirt. Some people might debate that some parts are a bit too simple, but I think you are getting well what you paid for.

Painting 8/10
There has really been put in some extra effort by Kotobukiya when painting this figure, this is especially to be seen at all the blood on her shirt. Unfortunately my specific copy of this figure had some quality control issues.

Posing 10/10
I don't give much 10/10's, but...this posing and the overall look of the figure is really like you are looking at Ash Williams if he were to be a female. I couldn't have thought of anything better to represent him.

Base 9/10
The base is also near-perfect with only some small nitpicks. It perfectly references the story of the movie and I'm really glad Kotobukiya went the extra mile to include something like this.

Packaging 9/10
Extremely well fitting for the franchise and compact too!

Enjoyment 9/10
As a huge fan of this franchise and character: Kotobukiya, the charater designer, the sculptor and the painters really knocked it out of the park with this figure. If it weren't for those quality control issues with the paint on her thighs, this would have been a 10/10 for me.

Conclusion

If you are a fan of ths franchise or this character, this figure is really a must-get unless you are not really into the whole bishoujo thing. If you in general like horror-related figures or badass looking strong and sexy women, I can also heavily recommend this figure. Kotobukiya really put this amazing piece for an amazing price on the market.

Availability

Like most bishoujo figures, I expected her price to quickly rise on the aftermarket, which is why I pre-ordered her for the original price of ¥9K with a bit of discount. If you would like to get her now, her price has indeed become a bit more expensive as she goes on average for ¥9,5-12,5K. I'm personally expecting her price to slowly keep on rising, but she might get a re-release in the future as Kotobukiya is doing that a lot more nowadays.

A few months after the release of the normal edition, a limited 'Groovy version' ITEM #771792 was announced. This version was made in limited quantities and shows Ash in a way more bloodied up version. Although I quite like the more bloody look, I do recommend to look into user pictures of this figure if you're interested in her, as it seems to be a bit weird how 'clean' her face is compared to how bloody they made her body. This special version is still easily available at Hot Topics www.hottopic.co... if you live in the USA. I do expect with this one to see the price rising once she is sold out everywhere.

And to finish it!

I temporarily put her on display with some other horror-related figures, but I plan on displaying her together with my other Horror Bishoujo once I have gotten to unboxing them!

JetJockey (2 månader sedan) #59012426Well done review.
I know I've seen the fingerprint thing on Sideshow Collectibles statues. You would think with the price they charge that wouldn't get through quality control. I hope we don't see more of this problem from Japanese companies in the future.


Thank you for liking the review! :)

Oh yikes, that's even worse. I already find it not acceptable for a ~$90 figure, but at their price range it's definitely not OK. I hope the customers that had those issues got replacements or partial refunds from Sideshow!

With my specific figure here you can say that a QC maybe just went at looking at the figure from a spin-around view, which made the fingerprints (especially the brown ones) go unnoticed. But yeah, Koto is known for a bit more slip-ups, which is definitely acceptable for their prices compared to other manufacturers, but I really draw the line at those fingerprints. Luckily I've never had fingerprint issues with any other of my Koto figures and also haven't seen anyone else on this site with something similar. The Koto Customer Support seemed quite shocked as well with my pictures!

Rajke (2 månader sedan) #58620884Thanks for reviewing her. Overall i think she looks great. Her face is indeed something debatable and for me it is the grinning part next to the wound that is somehow conflicting with the other side of her mouth. The details are amazing and the pose is very strong and matching with the character. :D

Yeah, that grinning is something that looked good 2D, but seems a bit strange in 3D. For the 3D version her mouth should be more open or they should have kept it completely closed. I still like it, but I can understand how for others it might be a reason (not) to buy.

But your last sentence really confirms with me how this figures is so matching for Ash Williams and I think Kotobukiya really outdid themselves especially if you look at her release price. :)

victorviper (2 månader sedan) #58611181Generally, I haven't had too much interest in these "western bishoujo" figures, but this one is quite neat with the horror+bishoujo theme. Plus, since the Evil Dead movies were never meant to be taken too seriously, that franchise is the perfect match for a figure like this.
It would be interesting to know how the sales numbers for a figure like this split between Japan and the USA/Europe, as I wonder how well known the source material is in Japan and I wonder what the market is in the USA/Europe for very niche figures like this (how much overlap is there between the Evil Dead fandom and the figure buying community?).


Thanks for your comment. :) And yeah I fully agree, this is probably the most perfect match so far in the Horror Bishoujo line. For me, this figure also feels the most matching to her male counterpart character so far. :)

I have absolutely no clue on the popularity of Evil Dead (2) in Japan, so if anyone reading this can enlighten us, I would love to know as well. :) I do know with this figure that her limited edition was only sold at Hot Topic (USA) and Tokyo Comic Con (JP). I recently read some articles about the USA-centric comic cons also getting bigger in Japan and there are lots of photos online of Japanese visitors at TCC in cosplays almost limited to only USA comic/movie characters. So Western pop culture seems to be growing bigger in Japan and this figure line could also boost the popularity of certain franchises over there I assume. :)
